Howdy Folks: 

Balug on Tuesday will host a new speaker, Thomas Belote.  

Tom will be talking about wireless mesh networking.  As a grad student at
San Jose State, Thomas has worked on Wireless Mesh Networking and Mobile
Ad Hoc Networking. His talk will compare solutions like OLSR and
Microsoft's semi open source Mesh Connectivity Layer (that doesn't run on
Linux). He will discuss why WDS is not sufficient and a mesh protocol is
needed, and discuss the lack of openness thus far in 802.11s even though
it is included in the OLPC, as well as security issues and implications.

If you'd like to come, please RSVP:
